Experiential learning

New Initiatives

Abacus

At LVIS,NE Abacus curriculum has been designed with a mission to implement high quality mental arithmetic based educational program to maximize children’s mental ability. With the help of countable beads children learn to perform arithmetic calculations such as addition and division. This helps students aged 4-13 years develop skills such as multitasking, time management, memory, concentration and problem solving.

TedEd Club

TedEd Club is an initiative started from October, 2019 for students of Grades 6-8. This club promotes critical thinking, communication and presentation skills in our students and gives them an online platform to spark curiosity and share ideas from around the world.

This club provides following opportunities to our students:

  • To connect with students from different backgrounds,  cultures and countries around the world
  • To support students in their learning skills such as making a presentation to an audience and public speaking
  • To work with a generation of problem solvers, critical thinkers and innovators to make the world a better place

Astronomy Club

Astronomy Club helps open newer horizons for our students by providing them with proper resources and information about celestial objects to spark the curiosity and ignite a spirit of enquiry in the budding astronomers and scientists of the future. The knowledge and information in this field is so vast that there is no dearth of how much more one can learn about the Sun, the Moon, the Solar System and the far away galaxies. The children get to explore and try out new ideas, foster innovation and nurture creativity in the field of astronomy.

Project Awaaz

The school has collaborated with Project AAWAAZ from the academic session 2019-20 onwards. This initiative not only helps the children to learn public speaking skills but also contributes towards their overall personality development. The Project Awaaz sessions focus on important aspects of public speaking such as expressions, body language, gestures, voice modulation, tone, and eye contact. The children learn these through exciting activities and fun games.

International Collaborative Learning

In this era of globalization, there is an increased interdependence on the exchange between different countries for varied cultures, economies, policies and innovation. Under this initiative, in October 2019, our school collaborated with Mashrek International School in Jordan with an objective to establish an international exchange of experience and dialogue to be able to tackle global issues. This aimed at stimulating young minds and enabled the learners to develop and establish strategic policies and practices even at the local levels. The session was made possible over a Skype Video session where grade IV children got to learn a lot of new things!

STEAM

STEAM enables the students to systematically think through problems and apply the information they learn about technology and engineering to find the best solutions. By experiencing trial and error, learning how to take risks and figuring out how to think outside the box, students get away from the commonly used approach of applying a known method or formula to solve a set of problems in a step-by-step way and rather learn through experiential learning and discover how something works, how to build it, and how to fix it.

Discover India

This project is launched for the students of grades I-III. The programme inculcates research skills in the students and helps them learn about their motherland through art work, discussions, videos, presentations, cuisines, etc.

Impact Programme

The programme has been introduced for classes Nursery-VIII to provide scaffolding to students to bridge the gaps in learning. Teachers adopt students and identify their socio, emotional and academic requirements and take appropriate measures to impact a positive change.

Integration of subjects with Art and ICT

ICT Integration

Information and communication technology has changed the way we think, work and live. The students use technology to make life better for the mankind. From research to flipped classrooms; from coding to designing; from using softwares for teaching and learning to using online tools of assessments, ICT is an intrinsic and integral part of our curriculum.

Art Integration

Creative thinking underlines the learning process at LVIS, as it enthuses, excites and engages every learner as well as sparks their innovative thinking. In order to reinforce the concepts and theories learnt in the classrooms as well as to help our students enjoy the academic learning process, we integrate various art forms such as visual art, creative movement, crafts, drama, storytelling etc. with the subject content.

Flipped Classroom

To make children the architects of their own learning and to hone their research and presentation skills from an early age, they don the hats of teachers and present lessons in their classes.

Peer Learning Programme

The school, in an endeavour to empower students and impart leadership, started the initiative under which students from senior classes with their teachers provide mentorship to their juniors through life skills peer learning programme.
